From the everyday to the hard to imagine, the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Technology is at the core of almost all technology. Our students and faculty are the tinkerers, creators, and magic makers that make change happen—the power source at the heart of dreaming, designing, and getting it done.
ECE Video Highlights
All Ph.D. students must complete the Institute's Responsible Conduct of Research requirements.
A Scientific Writing for International Students class is offered to our international Ph.D. students twice a semester during the spring and the fall terms. It is a non-credit course and cannot be found on OSCAR. The class is advertised every semester by the Graduate Office and participants are selected on a first-come, first-served basis. See a brief description of the class. For more information, please contact Dr. Daniela Staiculescu in the Graduate Office.
The Ph.D. Coursework Completion form must be completed on the ECE secure website, prior to the submission of the Ph.D. Proposal.
Students who wish to count course credit earned at other universities toward their Ph.D. degree requirements should complete this form during their second term. The classes have to be graduate or senior undergraduate level. No classes that were used to satisfy an undergraduate degree can be used toward the Ph.D. degree. Up to 30 hours of credits earned toward a graduate degree with a grade of C and above at a different institution can be used towards the Ph.D. degree. M.S. Thesis can be used in Group IV (electives) for a maximum of 12 credit hours. The approved classes will only count toward the Ph.D. degree course requirements and will not be transferred on the Georgia Tech transcript.
The following package needs to be submitted to the Academic Office for evaluation and approval:
Copy of the Coursework Completion form, filled out entirely. The classes have to show the institution name, number, and title. If the coursework is not completed at the time of the submission, future classes need to be included for a total of 43 hours. The future classes can be later changed to other eligible classes. Please use the classes taken at Georgia Tech in Groups I, II, and III as much as you can.
Non-official transcript from the institution where the classes have been taken. The transcript needs to show that the classes have been used toward a graduate degree and whether the institution has semester or quarter system.
Syllabi/course descriptions for all the classes to be used in Groups I, II, and III.
A soft copy of the M.S. thesis (if used in the coursework plan).
